    Laboratory

    The Barn has its own computer controlled Idexx laboratory to perform Biochemistry and Haematology tests. The veterinary nurses are trained in its operation. Other tests are couriered to other specialist veterinary laboratories.

  • Minor Ops

    Minor Ops

    Minor ops mean sometimes delicate surgery on very small animals, in this case Mr Shawn Holm is operating on a hamster! This requires a lot of skill especially with the anaesthesia.

  • Operating Theatre 1

    Operating Theatre 1

    One of two air conditioned, air filtered sterile theatres. Here the most sterile abdominal, thoracic and orthopaedic operations are performed. The Barn has such specialised equipment as Pulse oximetry, electrosurgery, suction and ASIF orthopaedic instruments and implants.

  • Preparation room

    Preparation room

    This is really the hub of the treatment area. Here the pre operation clipping and cleaning takes place and some minor operations such as dentistry. Blood samples are collected and animals put on 'drips'.

  • Reception

    Reception

    The Barn benefits from a large open plan waiting room split into 3 bays to keep some pets secure from each other. It has stands for Pet foods and Pet accessories and a Digital walk-on weighing scales. The reception desk is ‘manned’ by our fully trained veterinary nurses (not Receptionists!) who are able to give sound free advice on worming, fleas feeding and most aspects of pet care.

  • Ultrasound

    Ultrasound

    We have a state of the art 'PYE' ultrasound machine with two probes to enable diagnosis of pregnancy heart disease and investigation of abdominal disorders without resorting to surgery. Here Dr. Amber Christie checks for puppies!

  • X-ray

    X-ray

    Our powerful X-Ray machine is a valuable tool in diagnosis and an automatic processor delivers high quality images.

  • X-ray suite

    X-ray suite

    Animals are usually anaesthetised before radiography, the Xrays are directed onto the area required (collimation) and then the Nurses and Vets leave the room before the picture is taken remotely while observing the patient through a Quartz glass window in a Lead screened door.
